Visit and vacations

My sister and my niece are visiting us and I am so happy for this. Is good to have the two here .I really missed they .We visit a lot of places and even this not their first time here, we always “discover” new places to go. I confess that I didn’t cook so much, because we ate out the most part of the time. Confiteria las Violetas - Journey to the past - Cafe Tortoni We spent wonderful moments visiting traditional cafés, like Las violetas and Tortoni. This last was refuge of some intellectual people like, Borges and many others. My sister and niece are mad about chocolate and I made these brownies, with chopped white chocolate and cherries, I must to say that they ate a lot…. Brownies Brownie My niece has only 15 and a quite petty girl, she loves to draw, listened music, and bake cookies, exactly as her aunt... Tomorrow we will take vacations for a couple of weeks. See you in a few days …

Dos lugares muy caracteristicos/tipicos de Buenos Aires, pero Las Violetas para mi tiene un recuerdo y un encanto especial, gracias por compartir estas cosas con nosotros
